The FlatRacer BMW K4v Series pair of progressive fork springs are designed for improved handling and ride. The progressive winding means that as the suspension becomes compressed the springs become stronger, offering a more controlled suspension movement.
Their coil design with its rising rate allows to gently absorb small road bumps, greatly contributing for a comfortable ride but as you ride through harsher terrain (pot holes, bumps and other road imperfections), the springs will gradually firm up to provide a very controlled ride.
Another noticeable advantage over the standard linear springs is the greater control it offers over front end dive when braking, which is very noticeable on a BMW K series with tired springs due to its heavy weight often further compounded by big fairings, panniers, pillion luggage etc.
Heat treated for a long working life and ground ends ensuring a correct and positive fit.
BMW K series forks springs tend to get work fatigue and become inefficient in as little as 3 years of normal riding. This tends to aggravate an already softly sprung front end with its long suspension travel. BMW in fact recommended their replacement every three to five years, depending on usage.
The result never fails to impress for how much stabler and compliant the front end will feel.
New oil and seals are also recommended.
Fits all the BMW K1, K100 RS 16 v and K1100 models fitted with the original Marzocchi 41.7mm forks.
